Making the Mould

So I thought I would post another update regarding the stop motion puppet. I have started work on the mould 'housing' for which the Plaster of Paris will be poured into. The walls are made from Foam Board and held together with duct tape. For the bed that surrounds the sculpt, I used Newplast Plasticine, which is what I used for the sculpt. To avoid problems I used a different colour and also coated the sculpt in Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline) to act as a sealant. That is all for just now. Hope to start adding the PoP tomorrow. Fingers crossed this works out the way I wanted (this is my first attempt at a mould - prob should have tried a test first now that I think of it).
